It’s global: besides the 105-kg World Record-Breakers meet going on in Finland, the ASC 105-kg America’s Strongest Man contest was held yesterday and Dave Mihalov took home the title.

Dave Mihalov won the title, Beau Gertz was second and Justin Blake was third in what was ASC’s second big contest in two weeks.
“Dave Mihalov of Connecticut dominated the competition,” ASC president Dione Wessels told IronMind®. And since Dave Mihalov is Derek Poundstone’s training partner, Wessels added, “Connecticut sweeps in back-to-back weekends,” referring to Poundstone’s victory in the ASC America’s Strongest Man contest.
“The lightweight athletes were very impressive as they walked with an 830-pound yoke, pressed a 280-pound axle, carried a 650-pound frame with the IronMind® sandbags,” said Wessels. “It rained the entire time, but it did not stop the show from continuing!”
